The refund policy for the virtual meetings is different from the in-person training.
Cancellations made at least 96 hours prior to the start of the workshop are refundable, however, a total of $100 fee will be charged ($30 administration fee plus $70 for the books including shipping and handling).
Substitutions are permitted. Please note that any cancellation made less than 96 hours of the training will incur 50% of your registration fee. You would only be able to use the remaining amount for a future training and pay the difference at that time. For example, if you have paid $1000, you would only be able to carry a $500 credit towards a future training.
A refund will be issued to any registrant if the cancellation is done by Anger Management Essentials.
Certificate for completion:
Your certificate will be issued only once your payment has been made in full, and once you have completed the full certification course. Specific number of CE’s can be provided if you register for less than the full course, however the certification requires for the participant to complete the full course.
You will receive two books via FedEx or Amazon (one for adults and one for teens). This will be sent to the address you provided in your registration form. If received via Amazon, books may arrive in separate shipments. Should you choose to order a copy in Spanish, Armenian or Hebrew, be sure to place an order with me separately.
Virtual Trainings- You will receive an invitation to our Zoom meeting a few days prior to the training date.
Please be sure to download the app, and familiarize yourself with Zoom meetings. The main suggestion is to download the app, and test to make sure your video, microphone and sound work properly. Please note that a laptop or computer with video is required. Zoom via phone is not permitted. Please be sure to have the proper set up for the course.
Recommended Prior to the Training
You will receive the anger management manual for adults and teens. Though it’s not required to read the books prior to the training, it can be helpful to familiarize yourself with the program. Some people prefer ample time to prepare to offer a mock facilitation. If so, select up to three lesson plans you plan to teach. There are 52 lesson plans, be sure to select one from the table of content. Teen book is an option as well.
In order to make sure you understand the material, and to be comfortable with facilitating anger management groups, we have you facilitate two mock groups (5-6 minutes of length for each group) and one 1:1 session for 7-10 minutes. If group facilitation is a concern to you, please discuss alternative options with Anita by emailing me. The mock facilitation can feel stressful for some attendees, but they also mention how that is usually the best part of the program. If for any reason you are not able to make the mock facilitation, a make-up mock facilitation can be scheduled for you at the rate of $85.
